My husband and I went on a Wednesday and were a little surprised at how few people were in the theater. We almost second guessed our show pick....until they started performing. They were amazing!!!!!!! Not only did they put us in awe, they also made us laugh about halfway thru with the juggling performance. They were fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone to go see Acrobats of China.

We visited this show on 4/14 after reading all of the glowing reviews. There was hardly anyone in the theater, which should have been my first indication of what was to follow. The entire crowd could have filled the first six rows. My son and husband loved it, but I didn't care for it much. I spent 18 years as a dancer and it reminded me very much of my childhood recitals. Amateurish and definitely not worth the $100 we paid. All but 2 performers had zero stage presence (see the girl's face in the photo), toes weren't pointed, the performers were frequently out of synch, and the performance was so slow paced at certain points that I shut my eyes for a quick nap. Yes, it is impressive that they have children flipping on stage, but throw some costumes on the kids on your local gymnastics team and you could see the same thing for a lot less. My husband and son say it's worth 3 stars (because they've never been to anything like it). I, and any other former dancer/gymnast, would give it 2 at best.

Don't think about it. Go to this show. The artist are truly amazing. You will see them do feats that you did not think is possible. It's a fast moving, totally entertaining show. I was going to try and explain what they are doing but you really need to experience this show. Go, enjoy and then tell 10 friends to go and see it. Wow!

This performance is a must see!! These guys and gals are great performers. We were astounded by the many configurations they did with their bodies, objects and each other. Balancing, contorting their bodies in odd configurations and jumping through hoops were all some of the amazing acts among many. We went with family and sat in the third row. Everyone in our group loved the show. Glad we sat upfront to see the man in the rafters balancing on chairs...bravo to all of the performers!!
